On the basis of bass cabinets, this paper deals with the problem of reducing loudspeaker enclosure weight. An introductory market analysis emphasizes that lighter cabinets are sought, but maintenance of sound quality is vital. The problem is challenged through experiments and simulations in COMSOL Multiphysics, which indicate that weight reduction and sound quality maintenance is possible by reducing wall thickness and using adequate bracing and lining.
